Power Star Pawan Kalyan is making a comeback into the films after a gap of more than two and a half years. He is currently acting in the movie Vakeel Saab. The film's shoot is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is being reported that the shoot will resume soon. However, Pawan clarified that the shoot will not resume until the coronavirus cases curve flattens in Telangana.
Speaking in a recent interview, Pawan Kalyan stated that it is not good to resume shooting during these pandemic times. The actor said that the shooting of Vakeel Saab will resume only after the situation gets back to a normal state. This proves that the shoot will restart only after the vaccine gets into the market. That happens only by the end of this year. Going by this logic, the shoot of Vakeel Saab will resume either in November or December this year. There is about 30% of the shoot left to get filmed. The makers want to release the film during Sankranthi 2021. But it is being predicted that the movie may only hit the screens after March next year.
Vakeel Saab is being directed by Sriram Venu. It is an official remake of the 2016 Hindi courtroom drama Pink. Anjali, Nivetha Thomas and Ananya Nagalla are playing the other lead roles in it. Dil Raju is bankrolling the project and Thaman is composing the music of it.
